The American Farm Bureau Blog has great commentary on what a farmer’s winter day can be like after a heavy snowfall.

This put a smile on my face:

I asked him if he wanted me to blow the snow out of his tenant’s drive to save him the trip. He said sure and to send him the bill. I said that our farm didn’t charge anything for blowing neighbor’s snow. He asked why and how we could afford not to charge. I said that we were building stronger relationships. He asked, “Paying it forward?” I smiled and said, “You never know when it might help.”

Enjoy your Friday, and if you get a chance, pay it forward for someone today.
